Re: Fedora 14 (fresh install) - yum problems - Error: Cannot retrieve metalink..

Yeah cheers I just found that a restart of the NetworkManager service kills whatever I manually put in resolv.conf

sigh, another abstraction.

anyway, for those interested: i solved this problem by editing my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and putting an entry in there:


in my case the ip address of my router. yep i could also use the nameservers of my isp or opendns, but i choose not to.

i'm not running a gui, but i'd still solve it the command-line way if i did.
